Detroit-based Motor1.com, a global source of online car reviews, news, and information, today announced its acquisition of InsideEVs.com, the largest independent website dedicated to electric vehicle news.
Sebastian Blanco, a 20-year veteran of the journalism industry, and founding editor of AutoblogGreen, will be joining the company to supplement the existing talent at InsideEVs.com and consolidate the acquisition.
“It’s a pleasure to align the talents of Jay and his team at InsideEVs.com and Sebastian with our mission to stake a leadership position in EV media. We’re committed to following the automotive industry’s biggest trends and the rise of electric vehicles makes it a subject worthy of investing in expertise for our readers,” says John Neff, editor-in-chief of Motor1.com.
“We are now positioned better than any other publisher to deliver our readers around the world the best content — news, reviews, and video — related to electric vehicles and the ever-expanding green transportation sector.”
The acquisition underlines the strategy of Motor1.com’s parent company, Motorsport Network, to solidify the company’s position as a leader in the EV road car and electric racing media. Motorsport Network also recently acquired a shareholding stake in Formula E Holdings Limited, the commercial rights holder of the FIA Formula E Championship.
